since 1989. with the decline of 42 points. there is stock for sale as we approach the close here but we may very well see that sales pared off. if the dow were to finish above 13,886, that would be the situation. otherwise it's the best january since 1994 which is pretty darn good anyway. scott? >> got that right. with us brian singer, the head of dynamic allocation strategies at william blair, very own bob pisani joins us as well. brian, welcome, begin with you first. >> thank you. >> the whole january effect, believer, non-believer, what are you? >> non-believer. >> why? >> well, if the market is up in january, and we're already up 5% or so in january, we're already up 5% under our belt. if i had to pick any number from here, we'd be up a little bit over the year because we've got that under our belt. no reason whatsoever in any economic terms why that should have any implication for the rest of the year. >> i agreement you know what i believe in, scott, i believe in fundamentals and facts. that's all i believe n.want i want to see, fundamentals, things you can measure.
